At the heart of Dupont Circle is a traffic circle. The area also includes a park, neighborhood, and historic district in Northwest Washington, D.C. The traffic circle is located at the intersection of Massachusetts Avenue NW, Connecticut Avenue NW, New Hampshire Avenue NW, P Street NW, and 19th Street NW.  The Dupont Circle neighborhood is bounded approximately by 15th Street NW to the east, 22nd Street NW to the west, M Street NW to the south, and Florida Avenue NW to the north. The local government Advisory Neighborhood Commission (ANC 2B) and the Dupont Circle Historic District have slightly different boundaries.

Those are cold facts.  Dupont Circle is also the place where you can find a chess game, a bench to read a book, the shade of a tree for a nap, impromptu concerts from “junk yard” type bands and conversation.  It is a place to sit and watch Washington go by.  You can find a burger or a hot cup of coffee.  You can find fast food or elegant dining. Small shops offer all sorts of wares.  Dupont Circle may be made of concrete and clay, but it is alive.  Dupont Circle is the heartbeat of the local neighborhood.

Dupont Circle is served by the Washington Metro Red Line at the Dupont Circle Metro station. There are two entrances: north of the circle at Q Street NW and south of the circle at 19th Street NW. Regardless of how you arrive, you will be in for a treat. It is the one place anyone can visit and everyone fits in.
